A VERY popular cinematic (or literary) cliché–particularly popular in the genre of HORROR–goes something like this:
A ‘normal,’ everyday family acquires a new house in a new neighborhood and proceeds to move into the new house. After a few days, the neighbors of the normals knock on their door and introduce themselves. They appear to be ‘normal,’ everyday people–just like the newbies.
They are also almost always VERY cheerful, VERY friendly humans.
THEN, the plot thickens.
Very quickly, various clues lead the new normals to discover that their neighbors are NOTHING like our ‘normal’ heroes. IN FACT, it turns out that the VERY friendly, VERY cheerful neighbors are secretly SATAN WORSHIPERS (who, most of the time, enjoy sacrificing, then eating, nosy neighbors.).
The HORROR of the movie or book is then based around the newbies trying to convince others that their VERY friendly, VERY cheerful neighbors are satanic. They obviously, try to do this without the satanic neighbors finding out what the newbies are up to.
WHENEVER someone DOES come around to what the newbies are saying, then the HORROR of the satanic neighbors REALLY begins.
That is the popular view. It is so popular it has become a cliché.
HOWEVER, God’s Word informs us that the not-so-distant future is VERY different from what many suppose it be.
In the not-so-distant future, EVERYONE on earth will worship Satan.
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
The reality will prove to be QUITE DIFFERENT from all of those movies and books. The reality will prove that EVERYONE will be CHEERING (or at nodding in approval) at Satan and his nefarious ways and his satanic followers.
The average reader may protest.
“Oh, I will NEVER worship Satan!”
BUT, no doubt the average reader enjoys his creature comforts. AND, if one wants to enjoy his creature comforts–as well as his very life–in the end times, one MUST worship the dragon (Satan).
And the sheer horror of it all will quickly morph from a cliché to a necessary evil.
HAS the reader ever thought about being in this circumstance?
WHAT did the reader decide he would do?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
